Hi I was wondering if anyone can give me their advice on my creatinine levels.
I have been really unwell since may now the reasons for this are being investigated (adrenal tumour and possible POTS). Whilst in hospital I seen a glimpse of some test results, the one that caught my eye were the one that was highlighted - creatinine level 2.2 (194.480). The level of the previous test was 1.1 and the test after was 1.3 (i think). When I looked this up it states that this level of creatinine (if consistant) is stage 3/4 CKD. I am confused why my levels went up this high and then lowered again. I was drinking lots - i'm always thirsty.
Does anybody know why this happens and should I be concerned about this?
